So we all know and love dark, milk and white chocolates. But did you know there is a fourth kind of chocolate out there? I know right? This is GROUNDBREAKING! I am so excited to introduce to you, the ruby chocolate. The ruby chocolate was actually discovered about a decade ago (how can they keep such a secret from us!?) It comes from a ruby cocoa bean and it has taken researchers many years to find the perfect way to process this beauty so the world can enjoy it. Thank you chocolate gods!
The ruby chocolate has a very unique pink colour and an intense fruity flavour that is all natural (no artificial colours or additives have been added! It’s the real deal folks!)
As a cook, food and chocolate lover, I am so excited to see new ingredients like these get introduced that are natural and not artificially produced. All I can imagine are the delicious treats that can be created with this magical ruby chocolate.
So now you must be wondering, where can I get my hands on some delicious ruby chocolates, right? I thought the exact same thing! I literally contacted Callebaut chocolate when I found out about this ruby chocolate. I am not even kidding, I dropped everything and contacted them to see where and when I can get my hands on these chocolates and start testing them out. The ruby chocolate will be branded RB1, under the Callebaut chocolate family and will be introduced in Canada in 2019. (I know it seems like a long time, but I am sure it will be well worth the wait!)
Callebaut is a Belgium chocolate company that have been making high quality chocolates for over 100 years. They are my go to place to get all things chocolate. You can find them online and in many retailers around Toronto.
So we have to sit tight for a little longer until the ruby chocolate is available in Canada! Or, if you are travelling to Japan anytime soon, Kit Kat is actually the first brand that have used the ruby chocolate in their products – calling it Kit Kat Chocolatory Sublime Ruby. If you are heading to Japan, let me know! 🙂
